Frantic searches were carried out and the police helicopter was also called to search the waterway.

In the days that followed, police officers named Sean as the missing man while saying three men had been arrested on suspicion of murder.

It turns out Sean was involved in an “argument” before disappearing down the waterway, which is popular with families and dog walkers.

The men, aged 34, 28 and 24, were released on bail while police continue to investigate Sean’s disappearance.

Police have now said they found a body last night but have yet to formally identify it.

A West Mercia Police spokesman said: “A salvage operation is currently underway and it is expected that there will be a large police presence in the area for some time to come.”

“A formal identification is pending, but Sean’s family has been informed.

“Searches of the river continue with the support of West Mercia Search and Rescue and Hereford and Worcestershire Fire Brigade.”

Officers are appealing to anyone who was in the Quay Street/Castle Green area of ​​Hereford between 10:30pm on July 28 and 12:30am on July 29.

They have asked anyone who may have “seen or heard a disturbance or a person in distress” near the river bank to get in touch with us.
